When it comes to smartphones, there are phones designed for businesses, governments, and regular folks. You might think that maybe it’s just the software and features, and you would be right, but if there is one major difference is that security features on phones designed for enterprise and government use tend to be stricter.
Now if you’re thinking you’ll have to drop some serious dime to get phones secure for enterprises and governments, you won’t. According to a recent announcement by LG, it seems that both the LG G5 and LG V10 have been certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership, which means that both devices have been approved for use in enterprises and in military programs.
According to LG, they claim that this is possible thanks to the fact that both the LG G5 and V10 rely on GATE (Guarded Access To Enterprise) technology. The protocol helps deliver device management and hacking protection to phones that use it, meaning that it makes a hacker’s job much harder (but not impossible) if they are trying to retrieve information on your phone illegally.
Head of marketing communications for LG Mobile Communications Chris Yie adds, “With the growing importance of higher security in business these days, we believe a firm security platform is a must for mobile workplace devices. This certification is confirmation that LG smartphones are among the most secure mobile devices available today.”
